    being stupid, or having a lack of intelligence, or too much intelligence, or flaunting experience is sick and wrong. Anyone who tries to break another persons ba%%% have something to pick with themselves, and you should try to help them be cool, by taking your time with them and demonstrating how to effectively work with others.

    Janmae,
    Congratulations on your exemplary and mature actions. A wrong has been hopefully righted and there are alot of seniors out there that will benefit by having you there to take care of them.
    BTW, there seems to be an large number of Pgh caregivers around allnurseses.com. I guess there better be with one of the largest number of geriatrics in the nation. Glad you didn't bail, we need healthcare workers like you! Welcome and great luck!

    janmae,

    I totally agree with the others. Inappropriate behavior is bad regardless of who does it. You do not have to take it. She might have trained you, but that is no excuse for verbal abuse. I say report her.
